Tracking daily Nutrition, Goals, Vitamins, Dietary
I took a few days off tracking; I was pretty goog & avoided most the sweets that are everywhere this time of year; I had a couple brownies after the rollerskating event though & I also tried 1 of the jackolantern cookies (leftovers) ~
I did a weigh in & I'm down 5 lbs from 2 weeks ago when I started tracking. I would love to say it brings me to a new low: but it's sad but true that I had gotten down to 160 in July & had slowly gone back up to 170 by mid-October. So now I'm back at 165; and the good news is it seems everytime I checked over the last week I was steadily going down, and not up at all, so that's a relief: especially as I have neither exercised nor eating particularly little; counting somewhere between 1500 to 1800 calories a day is hardly a "diet" to lose wieght; it's pretty much a "standard/keep your weight steady" intake amount for my size To get to a "healthy BMI range" I only need to hit 133 lbs, according to most BMI calculators (133-135 range on this) so I am going to change my "weight ticker" goal from 125 lbs up to 133 lbs, as it is more realitic, and I think will be more encouraging for me to work towards. I can always make a new goal later if I'm not happy at 133 (ish) right?! *smile* I should hope so, at least.
- so that means I can really make a lot of progress if I figure out where in my schedule I can fit in a workout *sigh* It sure would help to have something regular (like a workout class - there is a Karate school a block from our house & Aurora is interested, I wonder if they have any "parent & kid" classes? But, Athena definately is not ready for that structured workout : HEH. I think 4 is when my little brother started & really loved it. 3 is about the smallest I've seen kids in martial arts classes & they do seem to love it, but they have to be at that "talking clearly" & "willing to stand still/follow directions" age. Although: Athena does do weekly stretch & grow at her preschool & I always get notes about how much she loves that. =)
But if I also had some routine I could do after the kids were in bed, that would be the best! I have, a yoga ball, pilates ropes, a couple jump ropes, some 5 lbs weights & a Yoga mat, so I figure I can do something during this after bed time (if I'm motivated)
------so back to tracking!-----------
